A Song For Joyce
*

This song is not in a battle


I wrote this song in 1983 when I was in college. There was a girl I liked, Joyce. There is not a lot of production on this. Just the bare minimum for an idea.

Does this song not follow the Rules? Please Report Abuse

Rich tone on the Sax - Would have liked to have heard it with more ambience, think it would suit the mood better.
Overall sounds nice, but yeah a full on production would have done it justice.
So did your fondness of Joyce blossom to a romance of any kind? Have you played her this song?

That was 4 and a half minutes of some pretty good sax, man.  I like the bass too, especially for the attention it gives to the beat.  Nice and simple.

Did you ever have a concept for lyrics on this, or was it always meant to be instrumental?

It was meant to be an instrumental.

I got stuck in the friend zone. But after I left school I had not more contact. She liked the song (I think). She was a flute player, so we played it together with me on piano. She was a really nice girl.

Swordfish

Music in general is the best medicine IMO

Sax indeed conveys emotion like no other instrument can.

Very nice track indeed.
